Bug Description

Binary package hint: virtualbox-ose

Trying to mount a shared folder with virtualbox (2.2.2-dfsg-2ubuntu3) results in the following error:

$ sudo mount.vboxsf Test /mnt/test
mount.vboxsf: mounting failed with the error: No such device

$ sudo modprobe vboxvfs
solves the problem.

So /etc/init.d/virtualbox-ose-guest-utils should automatically load vboxvfs.
